Tell us about yourself!
I really enjoyed this book. Mark Tufo continues to surprise me. He uses the same characters o er and over BUT the stories are always completely different. This book made me cry, it made me laugh, it made my jaw drop. It was great!
What a great book! I enjoyed the twist! Nice job Mark Tufo!!!!! Have 1 more book to get and then I'm done with all your books...looking forward to more!
This is a totally new type of story than I am used to with Tufo. But I love how he ties in some of my favorite characters.
Lover of books with a good plot, strong characters, lots of action, no whiners allowed, and only a small amount of well placed cheese
I've listened to so many books that it's not an easy question to answer. Sean Runnette was superb as usual, that man has the golden voice for Mike.The story was great and dreadful at the same time. If you have read the ZF series then you are already familiar with the accident. But this version of it turns out very different for everyone. This story was almost painful in what Mark puts Mike through. It really broke my heart when the bad bad thing happens in Mike's life (which really surprised me when it happened) and I'm NOT an emo reader!
There were quite a few cross over characters (and one that had to be the basis for Vivian D) but of course my favorite was Mike (poor poor Mike)
I've listened to hundreds of hours of SR's voice and he always makes the story better by bringing you right in to the story. You become a witness to the story rather than just an audience member.
Mike (sans his patch or his contact), cuz I want to see his eyes
If you are a Talbot fan and you have read Marks other books, then this is a great addition to the Mike Talbot alter ego/personality club.
BUT if you haven't read any of the other books I would not recommend this book to be your first one. Only because you see a side of him that never was.
Someone who hasn't read/heard Tufos' other books might have a different take on this story.
It's the same character, but one who undergoes very different experience's from the Zombie Fallout or Indian Hill series.
When it's all over, you'll recognize the story format. It's been used by many writers, Tufo just does it better.
It has some places where the story slows down, and some parts that come to a pointless dead end (no pun intended).
Over all, and looking back, I enjoyed the story. But it isn't in the same league as the Zombie
Fallout series. THOSE, I'd give 10 stars.
Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
Except for the last few minutes the book was rather depressing. Overall the story was rambling with little plot lines that were never truly resolved in a satisfactory manner. The ending was just too simple, it didn't explain enough of the preceding story.
This is a completely alternate universe for Tufo's main character from the Zombie Fallout series -Talbot. HE is the same but most everything else is different. I still really liked it, same great writing and narrating, but no zombies. There is plenty of supernatural and occasionally a familiar name or character will pop in, but this is not a continuation of Zombie Fallout. It is completely stand alone. Oh and there will be some confusing things that pop up and you'll think you are lost or have missed something. Just keep going, it will all make sense in the end.
